|Tennis is commonly known as the sports of the rich and famous. It shot to fame in the early 19th century when it was exposed to the multitude. Ever since, it has become much more than a time pass, hobby of the cream of society or the elite class. The game focuses much more on individual stamina, strength and dexterity then on team work like in more other sports like football, baseball or soccer. Just like everything originating from United Kingdom, tennis has a rich history with exaggerated customs and traditions which on their peak during the prestigious Wimbledon Grand Slam tournament held in UK every year.
The single game is all about mental and physical exertion, how one player outsmarts the other by reading his mind and his moves. The doubles game is much faster and twice the fun. If you want real nerve wrecking, heart pounding, ground shaking action that will keep you on the edge of your seat then tennis is the sport for you. If you looking for a different kind of action with a little glamour and leggy blondes running around the court in their designer miniskirts, earrings dangling, shrieking and punching the air then all you need is a couple of tennis tickets for you're the game!
There are four major tournaments which together are referred to as the prestigious Grand Slam tournaments. There is Wimbledon, Australian Open, American Open and French Open. Many have conquered and ruled the courts for several years but none has come anywhere close to being a legend world no 1 Roger Federer is. 28 year old Swiss has a myriad of coveted trophies on his record already but his gilded career by no means is over. With four Australian Opens, 6 Wimbledon, 5 US Opens but only 1 French Open. That is where he has received fierce competition by his Nemesis Rafeal Nadal.
No. 1 female player Serena Williams on the other hand has a fierce, legendry rivalry with none other than her own elder sister Venus. It happens fairly often that both the sisters end up competing against each other in the final of various high profiled tennis tournaments. They are both good at their game but sometimes luck favors Serena, while on other days Venus rules the day. These two sisters single handedly made women tennis much more than glamour and designer clothes. They brought muscles, sweat and attitude to the court and now it is here to stay.
Tennis is all about money, class, elegance, glamour and heart pumping action. It may not be your typical noisy, sweaty game but it sure is the best graceful game yet. If you have never been able to perfect your serve or made your back hand a little decent, or have had a hard time in returning serves, you have no need to spend countless hours sulking. Just grab some tennis tickets and see the professionals with their glitz and glam, star dust in their heads and be mesmerized by the sheer brilliance of the magic of a simple racquet and ball game.
